Indian Death Metallers PLAGUE THROAT Release First Single Off Upcoming EP!

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on February 2, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

Indian Death Metal duo PLAGUE THROAT have released their first single off their upcoming EP- Evolutionary Impasse. The track entitled The Epoch of Catastrophe II gives fans a glimpse of what the EP packs. Marked with chaotic blast beats, technical riffs often showing melodic passages and monstrous vocals pummeling its way across. This EP promises to divulge into the path of strong technicality yet showing heavy undertones of brutality unlike their previous releases.

The band’s front man Nangsan comments, “This song strongly condemns and questions the misusing and misleading of the masses by utilising the easily accessible stupidity and incoherence of the majoritarian mindset which in turns leads to division among people“.

MAGIC CIRCLE – Boston Heavy Metal Outfit To Release Third LP, “Departed Souls” Via 20 Buck Spin In March; Video For Title Track Now Playing

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , , on January 31, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

Boston’s MAGIC CIRCLE returns with their triumphant third LP, Departed Souls. Ending a four-year gap since the band’s acclaimed Journey Blind LP, Departed Souls will see release through 20 Buck Spin. Ahead of its March 29th street date, the label has released a video created for advance single, the album’s opening song and title track, “Departed Souls.”

MAGIC CIRCLE‘s self-titled debut hit the true doom scene like a revelation in 2013. Without hype or hyperbole, the band effortlessly invoked fundamental rock and roll truths putting their own stamp on early heavy metal darkness. Joining 20 Buck Spin for follow-up Journey Blind, the bandagain offered that unmistakable classic sound with natural unforced evolution. On their third LP, Departed Souls, MAGIC CIRCLE presents an expansive hard rock vision, adorning their signature doom with seamless psych and prog ornamentation.

Departed Souls finds MAGIC CIRCLE delving more deeply into ’70s sounds, expanding farther outward from the primordial Iommic matter of their birth. Heavy Sabbathian riffs abound, but MAGIC CIRCLE opens up, stretches out, exposing different shades that recall the moody peaks and valleys of the classic hard rock LPs of that era. Acoustic twelve-string, tablas, and Fender Rhodes appear in lush moments of kaleidoscopic decadence woven into the fabric of the pounding elemental thunder. All the while, vocalist Brendan Radigan seals the deal as one of the premier heavy metal singers of the 21st century, delivering that Wagnerian dynamism and vigor that screams from the heavens and becomes thoroughly controlled in moments of quiet solemnity. The album was recorded and engineered by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios, mixed by the band’s Chris Corry, and mastered by Andy Pearce and Matt Wortham (Black Sabbath, Angel Witch, Saxon, Rory Gallagher).

Though all members are busy with other projects including Innumerable Forms, Sumerlands, Devil’s Dare, Stone Dagger, Lifeless Dark, Missionary Work, Pagan Altar live, and more, when these five men come together in the MAGIC CIRCLE, the chemistry and palpable rock exhilaration reminds us that this band isn’t one destined to die with the herd.

MAGIC CIRCLE has created a video for the LP’s opening song and title track “Departed Souls,” compiling live footage of the band with ritualistic, religious, and spiritual practices.

See MAGIC CIRCLE’s “Departed Souls” video RIGHT HERE and stream the track at all major digital providers including Bandcamp HERE.

20 Buck Spin will issue Departed Souls on LP, CD, cassette, and all digital platforms March 29th. Watch for preorders to be posted in the days ahead. If you regularly spin Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Trouble, Led Zeppelin, Rainbow, Pagan Altar, Witchfinder General, early Soundgarden, Judas Priest, Witchcraft, and Saint Vitus, become a part of the MAGIC CIRCLE.

The band will play select festivals and shows throughout 2019, with a performance at Hell Over Hammaburg in Germany on March 1st confirmed. Watch for more information to be released in the weeks ahead.

__________________________________

Stone says: My favorite Yngwie Malmsteen album is Trilogy, released back in 1986 on Polydor Records. Man, have I ever listened to that album over and over! A beyond memorable album for me. Trilogy inspired me through each major art project I had to create and complete on time, while back in college during the latter 80’s. Good times. Aw, hell, that album still inspires me to this day.

The great Mark Boals is the vocalist on Trilogy; along with brothers Jens (keyboards) and Anders Johansson (drums).

Guitarist Damon Johnson (Black Star Riders/Brother Cane) To Release New Album

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , , on January 18, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

Damon Johnson Kicks Off 2019 With New Release

MEMOIRS OF AN UPRISING

via Double Dragon Records

First Single “Shivering Shivering” Available 1/25

March 8th Album Available for Pre-Order Now

______________________________________

January 18, 2019  – Today, Double Dragon Records reveals the artwork and release date for Memoirs of an Uprising, the self-produced new album from singer/songwriter/guitarist, Damon Johnson. The album is set for release on March 8, 2019 with pre-orders beginning January 25, 2019. Fans who pre-order Memoirs of an Uprising  will receive the album’s debut single, Shivering Shivering, as an instant grat track.  Orders for a limited edition Red Vinyl pressing of the album can be placed here.

After incredible runs with the bands he co-founded, Black Star Riders and 90’s chart toppers, Brother Cane, Damon Johnson found himself in spring of 2018 in a surprising position. Johnson had just completed a coast to coast tour with BSR supporting Judas Priest, as well as select reunion performances with Thin Lizzy, when he realized there were two things he couldn’t stop thinking about; his family and his music. Would 2019 finally be the year Johnson gives full focus to the music he kept hearing in his mind, composing an album, a true collection of songs that represented his personal vision, plus have the final say about his tour calendar? The answer was a resounding, YES!

Johnson explains, “After that Priest tour I was feeling anxious about some things: getting older, where my career would be in 10 years, how much time I was continually spending (mostly in foreign countries) away from my wife and our two youngest kids…plus I was sitting on a near completed solo album of the most honest music I’ve ever made. Ignoring some hard truths could not be a part of my deal anymore.” So Johnson made the decision to part ways with Black Star Riders, finish his album, and start over…this time completely on his own name.

The resulting album, Memoirs Of An Uprising is a collection that is both fierce and diverse – a powerful springboard for the musician to start his next chapter. Collaborating with his longtime friend and songwriter, Jim “Johnny Blade” Troglen, Johnson began assembling a group of songs in divergent tempos and grooves that appealed to his musical side and then laced them with lyrical themes of betrayal and revenge. “The first two songs we put together were “Shivering Shivering” and “Dallas Coulda Been A Beatdown” and I knew we were off to a great start,” says Johnson. Throughout Memoirs Of An Uprising there are musical events that are strictly meant to get bodies moving, like “Dallas…” and “Making Peace With This Wicked Beast.”  There are some truly challenged literary actors in “We Got A System” and “The World Keeps Spinning Round.” When it is suggested that this could be a concept album, Johnson says, “As much as I’d prefer to steer clear of that label, there is no denying these 10 songs can be consumed in one listen and feel like a complete story.”

Listen to sample of the thunderous first single, “Shivering Shivering”  HERE.

Album pre-order is available HERE.

Track Listing for Memoirs Of An Uprising:

Shivering Shivering

Dallas Coulda Been a Beatdown
